Tooth Bonding Odessa

If you have small enamel imperfections that are compromising the appearance of your smile, dental tooth bonding is a wonderful, versatile treatment that is also quick, effective, and affordable. Dr. Henderson often recommends bonding for patients in Southeast New Mexico and West Texas who have cracked or chipped teeth, enamel fractures, gaps in teeth, discoloration, or misshapen teeth. Bonding may also be used for small cavities as an alternative to tooth-colored fillings.

The Simple Steps of Bonding

After an in-depth dental evaluation, Dr. Henderson may suggest bonding as a way to improve the look of your smile. A shade guide helps the team determine the most ideal color.

During the bonding process, Dr. Henderson will begin by etching and conditioning the surface of the enamel to prepare it for the new addition. He then applies a safe composite resin material to the tooth enamel to correct defects. When the material is applied, it begins in the form of putty. Once the resin is carefully shaped to perfection, Dr. Henderson uses a special laser light to harden and bond the material.

After the bonding is fully hardened, the tooth will be trimmed and polished. In most cases, there is no need for numbing medication and the procedure can be done in under an hour.

The Benefits of Bonding

Our patients appreciate the fact that Dr. Henderson can perform the bonding process right away, with no waiting for a lab to create materials. Bonding is also one of the most affordable cosmetic dentistry options available today.

To keep your new bonding natural and bright, limit staining substances and avoid smoking. Remember to brush and floss regularly and avoid chewing on extremely hard foods or objects to prevent damage to the resin.
